Robert Scoble’s got the Zune Scoop direct from Microsoft in the video over at Scobleizer.
Assuming that the Zune is as good or somewhat better than the IPOD, as appears to be the case, this is shaping up to be a very interesting test of whether Microsoft can overcome the branding “momentum” of Apple and IPOD, nothing short of a spectacular success.
I’d think timing will matter a lot. If Zunes, coming out November 14, sweep into the Christmas scene with a bang and lots of positive press it’ll bode well for the long term prospects.
If the Zune song sharing feature takes off it could signal a turning point in how the big players change the way they integrate the consumer into the process of selling to other people. I predict that the company that most effectively integrates user content and user revenue sharing will be the big winner this decade, and that it’s still anybody’s game.
Bring it on baby I am depetate for a Zune, I can hardly wait just a few more weeks until November 14th! I am leaning towards the brown zune buy may also get white. I will be buying a bunch of accessories too. What is the best place to buy Zune?
Hey Gacca –
I don’t have shopping info but I think they’ll be pretty standard in price. I’d say check Circuit City for coupons though.
